******** 
Old Business 

Commissioner Lenvin inquired as to the status of the Water 
Department's drought planning with its suburban customers. Mr. Dean 
Coffey, General Manager and Chief Engineer, San Francisco Water 
Department, replied that the agreement with the suburban water users 
contains an allotment plan and the recently approved water 
conservation plan provides for closer monitoring of suburban 
consumption. He said that the department has the ability to restrict 
water delivery if necessary. Mr. Rudolf Nothenberg, General Manager 
of Public Utilities, added that there is an agreement to agree and 
work out an allotment of available water in the event the initial 
steps do not work out. 

Commissioner Lenvin asked whether the accident reduction program had 
resulted in a reduction in the amount paid in claims. Mr. Nothenberg 
replied that both the number of settlements and the average amount of 
those settlements are down. The proposed budget for 1986-87 will 
recommend a claims budget of $5 million, down from the $6 million 
originally budgeted for this year. 

Commissioner Lenvin requested a report on the status of cable car 
litigation. 



******** 



Report of the General Manager 



Mr. Nothenberg announced that the Bureau of Energy Conservation 
received recognition from the National Lighting Bureau for 
demonstrating in the City Hall lighting project the benefits 
attainable through the effective, energy-efficient application of 
electric illumination. 

******** 

Item No. 14 — Report on implementation plan for expansion of the 
paratransit program. 

Mr. Thomas Jordan, Staff Assistant, Special Projects, used charts to 
present an overview of the current service level and the cost of that 
service. He indicated that the waiting lists for taxi, group van and 
lift van service number 1337, 444 and 22 respectively. Mr. Thomas 
Rickert, Manager, Elderly and Handicapped Program, outlined the 
process and time schedule for selecting a broker for a new contract 
beginning July 1, 1986. 



86-006 



Commissioner Lenvin expressed concern about delegating the bidding 
process and allocating money among the modes of service in advance of 
the bidding process. Mr. Jordan replied that PUC has a work order 
with the Commission on Aging. The broker has already undergone a 
competitive bidding process through the Commission on Aging which has 
been reviewed by the City Attorney. Regarding the allocation of 
money, Mr. Jordan said that staff will negotiate with the broker on 
the number of service units expected. It is anticipated that the 
broker will be able to better that number on a competitive bid. 

Commissioner Lenvin expressed concern regarding bonding of the broker 
as security for the amount of money the broker handles. She 
suggested that staff consider administering the program in-house. 
Mr. Jordan replied that currently there is a fidelity bond. The 
broker only handles the equivalent of one month's budget at a time. 
However, he said that he would evaluate the alternatives and their 
costs .

VOTE: Ayes - Flynn, Lenvin, Barletta, Lee

Commission. 



******** 



Public Hearing — Resolution No. 86-0021 - Adopting budget 
proposals for fiscal year 1986-87. 

Municipal Railway 

Mr. Rudolf Nothenberg, General Manager of Public Utilities, 
stated that the City's General Fund problem had not been solved. 
The City had predicted a £75 million deficit which assumed no 
cost increases other than salary standardization. All other 
increases must be absorbed by the department. The fare increase 
and revenue package adopted by the Board of Supervisors will 
raise $55 million, leaving a deficit of $20 million not covered. 
He said that now the Municipal Railway is faced with a budget cut 
on top of a fare increase. The proceeds from the fare increase 
were a contribution to the General Fund. The only increase that 
will be allowed in the Municipal Railway's budget will be $1 
million for service increases for the elderly and handicapped 
program. Mr. Nothenberg itemized those cost increases which must 
be absorbed, totaling $3.7 million. He recommended rational 
service cuts as a means of reducing the budget deficit. 

Mr. Nothenberg discussed in detail the adjustments to the 
continuing budget and incremental requests. 

Commissioner Barletta moved, Commissioner Lenvin seconded, to 
delete $502,000 for insurance and risk reduction. The motion was 
unanimously approved. 



86-009 



Commissioner Lee moved, Commissioner Lenvin seconded, to increase 
Worker's Compensation by $500,000. The motion was unanimously 
adopted . 

Commissioner Toupin moved, Commissioner Barletta seconded, to 
reduce the budget for judgments and claims by $400,000 to a total 
of $5.1 million. The motion was unanimously adopted. 

Commissioner Lenvin moved, Commissioner Barletta seconded, to 
delete $100,000 from the budget for the Harrison Street Division 
startup. The motion was unanimously adopted. 

Commissioner Barletta moved, Commissioner Lenvin seconded, to 
delete $150,000 for graffiti control. On the question, 
Commissioners Flynn, Lenvin, Barletta and Toupin voted "Aye," 
Commissioner Lee voted "No." 

Commissioner Lenvin moved, Commissioner Barletta seconded, to 
approve one new General Superintendent position and one other 
cable car position, either a Switch Repairperson or a Wire Rope 
Mechanic Trainee, to be determined by staff. The motion was 
unanimously adopted. f 

Ms. Alice Fialkin, Vice President Supervisory Employees 
Association, MUNI/Transport Workers Union Local 200, spoke in 
opposition to contracting of scheduling work which can be done by 
employees already in the department. She suggested relaxing 
salary savings to allow hiring of additional people. 

Commissioner Lenvin moved, Commissioner Barletta seconded to 
approve $70,000 for professional services work for the Scheduling 
Department. 

Regarding the proposal to replace special duty operators assigned 
to clerical duties, Mr. Samuel Walker, President Transport 
Workers Union, Local 250A, supported returning operators to 
driving, but objected to paying for the replacement positions by 
reducing funds for operator salaries. 

Commissioner Lenvin moved, Commissioner Barletta seconded, to 
disapprove replacement of special duty operators. 

Mr. Norman Rolfe, representing San Francisco Tomorrow, said that 
the City has made it easier to use private autos and more 
difficult to use public transit, thereby undermining the "transit 
first" policy. He suggested that the Commission appeal to the 
Mayor and the Board of Supervisors to redirect funds to transit 
which have been alloted to building garages and other purposes. 

Mr. Stephen L. Taber, representing the Coalition for San 
Francisco Neighborhoods, stated that the organization voted in 
favor of the "transit first* policy and against any cuts to Muni 
service, especially off-peak service and community service. 

Mr. Bruce Marshall, representing the Muni Coalition, requested 
that the Commission reconsider the graffiti program. He said 
there needs to be an increase in service and suggested using 
other sources of revenue such as the Transit Impact Development 
Fee and the parking tax to fund transit. 

Commissioner Toupin was excused at 5:04 P.M. 

Ms. Tanya Light said that if the public knew how much the City 

was spending in reimbursements to the Bay Area Rapid Transit 

District (BART) for Fast Pass riders, they may want the program 
reconsidered . 



86-010 



Mr. Anson Moran, Assistant General Manager, Finance, PUC, replied 
that the City reimburses BART based upon BART ' s fare. BART ' s 
cost of service is much greater. Therefore, the City is getting 
the benefit of providing the service at the farebox recovery rate 
rather than the full cost of service. 



PUC Bureaus 

Mr. Nothenberg pointed out reductions in the continuing budget 
and then described the proposed incremental programs. 

The budget for the Bureau of Engineering contains an increase for 
office space rental because the Unified School District intends 
to recapture the building now being used by Engineering. 

Commissioner Lenvin moved to limit the new rental amount to $1.50 
per square foot. Commissioner Barletta seconded. The motion was 
adopted. 

Commissioner Barletta moved, Commissioner Lenvin seconded, to 
approve $66,961 for the Bureau of Administration, Safety Unit. 
The motion was adopted. 

Commissioner Lenvin moved to delete $76,000 from the budget of 
the Bureau of Management Information Systems for maintenance and 
software support for the Bureau of Engineering's data processing 
system. The funds for these services will be paid out of last 
year's supplemental appropriation for Bureau of Engineering 
improvements. Commissioner Barletta seconded. The motion was 
adopted. 

Mr. Nothenberg said that after the adjustments just approved by 
the Commission, the Municipal Railway budget is still out of 
balance by $2.1 million. He suggested service cuts as a means of 
balancing the budget. 

President Flynn and Commissioners Lee, Lenvin and Barletta spoke 
against cuts in service. 



Water Department 

Mr. Nothenberg compared the current budget to the proposed budget 
for 1986-87. He pointed out a proposed increase of $3 million 
for capital improvements and described 5 new programs, totaling 
$549,859. 

President Flynn asked for public comments on the Water Department 
budget. There were no comments. 

Hetch Hetchy 

Mr. Nothenberg reviewed the funding summary for 1986-87. He 

noted that the transfer to the General Fund is estimated to be 

$41 million, down from this year's expected transfer of $50 
million . 

President Flynn asked for public comments. There were none. 



86-011 



Bureau of Light, Heat and Power 

Mr. Nothenberg noted that this will be the first time since 
wheeling charges were increased, that the bureau will seek to 
recover the increased amount from City departments. 

Commissioner Lenvin moved adoption of the budget resolution, as 
amended. President Flynn seconded. Resolution number 86-0021 
was adopted.

New Business 

Commissioner Toupin requested that staff proceed to study means 
by which the Municipal Railway can qualify for Urban Mass 
Transportation Administration grant funds by undertaking a 



86-017 



"privatization" program. Mr. Nothenberg replied that staff is 
looking at opportunities to contract services both for the purpose 
of meeting the UMTA requirement and also to save money, since only 
those services which can be provided mc ?ly can be contracted 
out under the city's "?rcp J" process.. 

******** 
Report of the General Manager 

Mr. Nothenberg stated that a replacement for former Commissioner 
John Sanger is needed to serve as a member of the Metropolitan 
Transportation Commission AB-842 Committee. 

******** 

Resolution No. 86-0025 - - Approving Water Department Capital 
Improvement Program, 1986-87 through 1991-92. 

Mr. Nothenberg said that the proposed capital program for this year 
is $16.8 million. It is important that capital projects are 
completed because the agreement with the suburban customers provides 
for a return on equity. Facilities are not incorporated into the 
rate base until they are on line. 

President Flynn asked, whether a monitoring procedure is in place 
which will assure that the City is in compliance with the promises 
made in the indenture. Mr. Nothenberg answered affirmatively. 

Commissioner Toupin asked how the long term plan for maintenance was 
developed. Mr. Dean Coffey, General Manager and Chief Engineer, San 
Francisco Water Department replied that the department looked at 
life expectancy and areas of deferred maintenance and developed a 
plan to replace the infrastructure before its life expectancy is up. 

Commissioner Lee requested a bar chart detailing the various stages 
of each project. Mr. Nothenberg pointed out that the Bureau of 
Engineering prepares those reports on a monthly basis. 

■•• ******** 

Resolution No. 86-0026 --• Approving Hetch Hetchy Capital Improvement 
Program, 1986-87 through 1991-92. 

Mr. Theodore Chung, Deputy General Manager, Hetch Hetchy Water and 
Power, stated that in addition to life expectancy the department has 
an inspection program which it relies upon for planning of capital 
projects . 

**••*••* 

Resolution No. 86-0031 — Authorizing a Request for Proposals to 
provide paratransit broker services. 

Commissioner Lee mentioned that the Request for Proposals did not 
include minimum quantities. 

Mr. Thomas Jordan, Staff Assistant, Special Projects, replied that 
the approximate amount of money available for the program is 
included, as well as data on last year's program. At the prebid 
conference, staff will indicate the approximate level of service 
expected for each vehicle mode.

86-018 



Resolution No. 86-0034 - Authorizing an amendment to professional 
services agreement with Tudor Engineering Company for services 
related to the Kirkwood Powerhouse Addition. 

Commissioner Barletta questioned the seeking of commission approval 
after the rx :as been lor.e "•:. Leo Jed* Deputy General Manager 
and Chief Engineer, PUC, replied that the bureau was trying to meet 
the accelerated project schedule. Mr. Nothenberg added that there 
were delays caused by the Department of Interior. The Commission 
did approve acceleration of the project. There is no question the 
services were rendered. However, it was not possible to get each 
item approved in advance although the funds were there. Because of 
the acceleration staff asked the contractor to do things 
differently, using the same pot of money. Staff is now presenting 
the Commission with the consequences of the acceleration. The 
contractor asked for $260,000. Staff negotiated the amount down to 
$132,000. 

Mr. Jed said that when you have projects with a tight time schedule, 
within the scope of the projects changes are always being made. If 
there had not been a dispute with the consultant as to the value of 
the service we would reimburse, this item would have been here 
sooner. We work all the time with changing scope. If we stop each 
time the impact on the life of the project would be quite critical 
and quite costly. 

Commissioner Barletta said that he felt there is value in having the 
Commission involved in these decisions before they are made. 

Mr. Nothenberg said that it is reasonable to expect that the 
Commission authorize and that staff come in with the details on 
projects to be undertaken. There needs to be some understanding of 
what is possible for staff to do within the scope of an authorized 
project. We would not undertake to spend more money without 
Commission authorization. 

Commissioner Toupin said that if certain latitude is needed staff 
should seek that flexibility when the project is first presented to 
the Commission. 

Mr. Jed said that his understanding is that latitude exists as long 
as it is within the original scope of work for the intended facility 
and within the available dollars. 

Mr. Nothenberg said that if it is clearly in the scope and the 
available money, and does not mean a significant change in the way 
in which the project will operate or what it was intended for, we go 
ahead. If there is a significant change in the way the project will 
function or in the anticipated cost/benefit ratio, we do not 
undertake those changes. We do not have a dollar limit for making 
such a determination. 

Mr. Nothenberg said that he would prepare a memorandum covering 
current procedures for the Commission.

presidents of all boards and commissions on February 20, 1986. She

impossible for the Water Department to obtain supplies of liquid 
fluoride, therefore, fluoridation has been temporarily discontinued. 
Staff will continue to search for a supplier of fluoride and will 
resume fluoridation as soon as the chemical is available. 

Divestiture Ordinance 

Mr. Nothenberg reported that the City passed a divestiture ordinance 
and an ordinance requiring that City departments try not to do 
business with those entities that have ongoing relationships with 
South Africa. The Purchaser has published a draft regulation for 
implementing the ordinance. Staff is developing procedures so as to 
comply with that ordinance. 

Funds for the Embarcadero Turnaround project were approved since the 
contract was entered into prior to passage of the ordinance and, the 
ordinance excludes federally funded projects since they are not 
subject to local restraints. 

Payroll Conversion 

Mr. Nothenberg stated that conversion to the new payroll system has 
gone very well. Input into the new system began February 8, 1986. 
The first checks will be distributed March 4, 1986. The conversion 
project was a joint effort of the Bureaus of Financial Management, 
Personnel and Training, and Management Information Systems. 

President Flynn thanked all staff who worked on the payroll 
conversion project.

Financial Management 

Mr. Anson Moran, Assistant General Manager, Bureau of Financial 
Management, PUC, reported that major activities for the period were: 
payroll conversion, issuance of Water Department revenue bonds, 
management of Transit Impact Development Fee ordinance, responding to

closeout of UMTA grants. Two vacancies in the auditing unit have

department and its functions. He reported that the amount of revenue 
Hetch Hetchy has contributed to the City's general fund has steadily 
risen - from $12 million in 1982 to over $60 million last year. This 
year the department expects to contribute approximately $50 million. 
He pointed out that the amount of revenue earned is dependent upon 
weather conditions. 

Mr. Chung announced his retirement, effective March 3, 1986. 

Mr. Nothenberg thanked Mr. Chung for a lifetime of service to Hetch 
Hetchy and the City and County of San Francisco. He expressed his

handling of hazardous materials; seeking approval of funding for the 
Watershed Management Program, and initiating development of a long 
range resource plan for the Water Department and Hetch Hetchy. He 
introduced his staff and described their areas of responsibility. 



Personnel and Training 

Ms. Andrea Gourdine, Manager, Bureau of Personnel and Training, 
described the units within the bureau and their functions. She 
reported that the focus during the last six months has been systems 
development, skills specific training programs and payroll conversion. 

Management Information Systems 

Mr. Johannes Loffeld, Director, Bureau of Management Information 
Systems, reported that installation of new computer terminals 
resulted in a growth rate for the network of 50% per year. During 
the period the Bureau purchased and installed new disc storage units, 
replacing units which had "crashed" 29 times in the last two years. 
He reported that a manager had been hired for the Technical Services 
unit. 

Engineering and Construction Management 

Mr. Leo Jed, Deputy General Manager and Chief Engineer, PUC, reported 
that the Bureau is currently managing 105 projects. During this

the staff proposal. 

Mr. Charles Miller, 2232 California, stated that the problem is 
double parking at the donut shop at California and Fillmore Streets.

President Flynn directed that staff conduct another neighborhood 
meeting, give notice that the bus stop at California and Fillmore 
Streets may be eliminated, obtain information as to the comparative 
number of people affected by each route, and information on the 
ability of the bus to make the necessary lane changes on Gough Street.

the Public Utilities Commission. 

Special Meeting 

To consider authorizing the General Manager of Public Utilities to 
negotiate with Gannett Outdoor Company, Inc., for the providing of 
transit shelters and to submit a proposed contract with Gannett 
Outdoor Company, Inc., to the Public Utilities Commission for its 
approval; and authorizing the General Manager of Public Utilities to 
form a Design Review Committee composed of experts in the field to 
develop a final shelter design based on the Gannett Outdoor Company, 
Inc., prototype. 

Mr. Rudolf Nothenberg, General Manager of Public Utilities, reported 
that in accordance with the established criteria, the selection 
committee recommends contracting with Gannett Outdoor Company, Inc. 

Commissioner Lee expressed concern about the lack of definitive 
coverage of graffiti removal in the proposed contract. 

President Flynn invited all bidders to address the Commission with 
regard to any concerns they may have about the bidding and selection 
process. 

Ms. Alice Fialkin, Vice President, Transport Workers Union Local 
200, stated that an item negotiated in the last Memorandum of 
Understanding was that management would approach each of the bidders 
to see if an additional section could be added to the shelter to 
provide shelter, light, heat and telephone facilities for street 
supervisors. She asked what the response of the bidders had been on 
this matter. 

Mr. Nothenberg replied that the design criteria and bid documents 
had been prepared before that became an issue. Therefore, these 
items were not part of the bid process. 

Ms. Fialkin asked that the issue be considered in the negotiations. 

Mr. Nothenberg said that if the City wishes to spend the money for 
such facilities staff can negotiate with a firm outside of this 
contract. 

Mr. Paul Winston, of Winston Network challenged the selection 
process. He said that the Request for Proposals (RFP) stated that 
the proposal must be in last and final form and that no 
modifications to the proposal would be accepted. He submitted the 
original of a document with notations which indicated that Gannett 
Outdoor Company, Inc. had submitted the document as a modification 
to its proposal. The specification called for a minimum height of 7 
feet, 6 inches. Mr. Winston said that the Gannett Outdoor shelter 
was 6 feet, 6 inches. He stated that he was of the opinion that his 
firm's shelter, which met the minimumum height, was discounted 
because it did not give the same protection from wind and rain as 
the lower Gannett Outdoor model. 



86-036 



He said that he had requested information as to how the 25 points 
reserved for the ratio of noncommercial to commercial shelters would 
be allotted by staff. This information was never received. He said 
that Gannett Outdoor won this area. He noted that the Gannett 
Outdoor proposal called for placing less expensive shelters at 
noncommercial sites. He said that staff worked closely with Gannett 
Outdoor - so closely that they accepted a late document. 

Mr. Bruce Williams, President, Shelter Media, stated that he 
reviewed the Gannett Outdoor proposal. Their financial data 
indicated that with a bid ratio of 1.87 for commercial to 
noncommercial shelters, the company will be internally funding this 
project. He questioned the ability of the Gannett Outdoor shelter 
to adjust to grades and narrow sidewalks. He cited nonconformity of 
the Gannett Outdoor shelter with the City's specifications in the 
areas of: mounting on narrow sidewalks such as those in attachment 
C of the RFP; ability to adjust to a 20% grade; lack of the use of 
steel; maintainability of surfaces; compatibility with Market 
Street; no deterrent for parade viewing from the roof, and lack of 
electrical intercept plans. 

Mr. Williams said that he received no points for affirmative action 
even though Barrios Construction will be doing all the underground 
work. He had submitted a letter which stated that Shelter Media 
would: meet all employment goals; buy all shelters here; let 
contracts; employ 50% minorities receiving 40% of the total payroll; 
and give 50% of the supplies to minority and women business 
enterprises . 

Mr. Williams questioned the latitude that may be given to an 
architectural review committee. He noted that the specification 
calls for no changes. 

Mr. Williams offered to put up 10 shelters on a trial basis. 

Mr. Larry Ferolie, General Manager of Target Outdoor Media, 
requested a thorough explanation of the evaluation process. 

Members of the Commission asked questions for clarification of the 
issues. Responses furnished by staff include the following points: 

The Gannett Outdoor shelter reaches the minimum height of 
7 feet, 6 inches at the interior high point of the vaulted 
roof. The shelter has flexibility to be raised or 
lowered. The late document corrected a typographical 
error changing $720.00 to $72.00. The RFP did not require 
the use of steel, but required that the type of material 
to be used be defined. The shelter has flexibility to be 
able to fit onto narrow sidewalks. Electrical plans were 
submitted. No points were assigned for the firm's 
affirmative action plan - it was a pass or no pass item. 
Points were assigned for preference for Minority Business 
Enterprise (MBE), Local Business Enterprise (LBE) and 
Women Business Enterprise (WBE). No points were assigned 
for height and there was no discussion of it by the 
selection committee. There may be minor modifications of 
the design with respect to negotiation of a final 
contract; but they must stay within the specifications and 
may be decided on an issue by issue basis. The selection 
committee considered minor refinements to all of the 
models . 

Mr. Arvid Eckenberg, Managing Director, Shelter Incorporated, 
responded to questions on behlaf of Gannett Outdoor. He said that 
each of the competitors has the same footprint. There is some 
latitude, depending upon placement of the shelter 18 inches from the 



86-037 



curb or against the property. The firm suggested to the selection 
committee that on very narrow sidewalks a single face on the rear 
wall of the shelter could be used or the configuration of the end 
walls could be narrowed. In certain locations the firm proposed 
that bus bulbs be considered. In certain locations no shelter can 
be built. Mr. Eckenberg said the firm could accommodate a 10 foot 
sidewalk from among the various configurations of shelters which the 
firm proposes, and that all of the shelters will be accessible to 
wheelchairs . 

On motion of Commissioner Toupin, seconded by Commissioner Barletta, 
this matter was continued to the meeting of March 25, 1986, at 2:00 
P.M.

New Business 

AB 842 Committee 

President Flynn reported on a recent meeting of the AB 842 Committee 
which passes upon the division of sales tax funds by the Metropolitan 
Transportation Commission (MTC). Currently on the agenda is the 
division of $8.4 million between AC Transit and the Municipal Railway 
for supplying feeder service to the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART). 
This matter was continued to March 21, 1986. Also, the term of 
allocations, that is, one year or two years, will be considered at 
that time. 

president Flynn asked for a Commissioner to serve on the AB 842 
Committee to replace former Commissioner Sanger. Commissioner Lee 
agreed to serve. 

******** 

Item No. 16 — Consideration of a 20-year lease of 5.46 acres, more 
or less, of Water Department property to the community College 
District of San Francisco, for the purpose of automobile parking for 
students, at an initial annual rental of $10,000.00. 

Mr. Nothenberg stated that the proposed lease is less than market 
value. It is the result of a compromise between the College 
District, which believes that parking should be free, and the 
Commission which has stated that it is not in the business of 
providing free parking. 

President Flynn stated that he would not support a 20-year lease at 
this price. Commissioner Toupin inquired as to the rational of 
approving what is almost a gift. Mr. Nothenberg replied that 
presently the college has a revocable permit. The proposed lease 
would be with another public agency for a public purpose. He 
expressed the opinion that it was not likely the college would be 
able to pay more than $10,000 annually. Previously, the Board of 
Supervisors had requested that the college be allowed to use the 
property for nothing. 

Ms. Mathea Falco, Manager, Bureau of Claims and contracts, explained 
that the reason for the 20-year term was because the College Board 
felt it needed the certainty of the parking privilege. The 
termination clause requires one year prior written notice of intended 
use for reservoir purposes. President Flynn suggested a one-year 
lease for $10,000.00. Mr. Nothenberg recommended retaining the one 
year revocable permit and foregoing the marginal economic benefit. 
He said that staff would negotiate a year-to-year tenancy and ask 
that the college maintain the property. 

The item was removed from the calendar.

******** 

Special Order of Business - 2:00 P.M. 
Item No. 8 — Transit Shelter Program 

Mr. Rudolf Nothenberg, General Manager of Public Utilities, reported 
that the City Attorney had advised that the process used to select a 
contractor was irremediably flawed. Given the City Attorney's 
opinion, Mr. Nothenberg recommended that the Commission reject all 
bids. 

Commission Toupin moved to reject all bids. Commissioner Barletta 
seconded. 

President Flynn opened the meeting to comments by the bidders. 

Mr. Neil Eisenberg, attorney for Gannett Outdoor Company, Inc., 
requested that this matter be continued so that his firm could 
analyze the City Attorney's opinion and make a response. 

The Commission voted unanimously to reject all bids. 

Mr. Dennis Manning, representing Gannett Outdoor Company, Inc. of 
Northern California, stated that no improprieties occurred regarding 
his firm, the PUC staff and the selection committee. 

Commissioner Toupin moved that the General Manager and his staff be 
requested, after consulting with the City Attorney, to develop a 
recommendation for this Commission concerning the desirability of 
seeking new bid proposals for the Transit Shelter Program; and 
further, that the General Manager be directed to provide for the 
Commission a recommendation concerning any changes in the Request for 
Propopsals to be used in any such request for new bid proposals; and 



86-049 



further that such recommendations be delivered to the Commission not 
later than one month from today. Commissioner Lee seconded. 
Resolution No. 86-0096 was unanimously adopted. 

******** 

Item No. 9d — Regarding the award of Water Department Contract No. 
WD-1928. 

Mr. Stan Smith, Secretary, Building Trades Council, opposed the award 
of the contract to Power-Anderson, Inc., due to lack of an approved 
apprenticeship program for pipefitting and plumbing. 

This matter was continued for review of the company's apprenticeship 
program. 

******** 

Resolution No. 86-0103 — Adopting a policy statement regarding the 
Public Utilities Commission's implementation of private sector 
participation in the provision of transportation services. 

Mr. Nothenberg reported that the Urban Mass Transportation 
Administration rejected this year's Section 9 grant application 
totaling $24.9 million for lack of a policy statement on 
privatization. The City Charter provides for privatization where 
that service can be rendered more cheaply. To meet UMTA requirements 
it will be necessary for staff to develop a model of full costs for 
comparison purposes and to develop an appeals procedure outside of 
the Commission. 

Mr. Larry Martin, International Representative, Transport Workers 
Union, urged the Commission to postpone action because the union is 
in the process of discussing this matter this week with the Secretary 
of Transportation in Washington, D.C. 

Commissioner Toupin moved approval of the policy statement with the 
caveat that submittal to UMTA will be delayed to allow the union an 
opportunity to make its case, so long as grant funds are not 
jeopardized. Commissioner Lee seconded. Resolution No. 86-0103 was 
unanimously adopted. 

******** 

Item No. 12 — Presentation of second quarter performance review for 
the Municipal Railway. 

Mr. William G. Stead, General Manager, Municipal Railway, presented a 
revised organization chart of the Transportation Department. The 
revised structure would place accountability for the performance of 
all routes at the division management level. This will be 
implemented within the next few months. Mr. stead also reported that 
Management Plans (commitment documents) were being developed for each 
level of management. Special projects and capital projects will be 
tracked separately.

Report of the General Manager 
Graffiti 

Mr. Rudolf Nothenberg, General Manager of Public Utilities, announced 
than an agreement had been reached with the Police Department 
regarding combating graffiti on Municipal Railway vehicles. The 
Police Department will provide a significantly increased presence on 
the fleet; they will book and put in jail all adult second offenders 
rather than citing them; all juveniles will be kept in Juvenile Hall 
for the night, released in the custody of their parents the next day 
and the City will try to recover damages from them. The Mayor posted 
a $500.00 reward for anyone providing information leading to a 
conviction. Mr. Nothenberg reported that there has been community 
support as evidenced by three recent citizens' arrests of juveniles 
who were caught writing on buses. 

Commissioner Toupin moved to request the General Manager of Public 
Utilities to maintain a monitoring system over the various parts of 
government involved with the graffiti problem. Such monitoring shall 
include the number of arrests, how they were handled by the Police 
Department, the District Attorney's Office, the courts and judges, 
with a report to the Commission every six months. Commissioner Lee 
seconded . 

Resolution No. 86-0110 was unanimously adopted. 

******** 

Resolution No. 86-0136 — Regarding award of Water Department Contract 
No. 1928. 

Mr. Nothenberg reported that the City Attorney rendered an opinion 
which advised that the Commission may award this contract to the low 
bidder. However, to do so the Commission must specifically waive the 
apprenticeship requirement because the contractor will be fulfilling 
his obligations in a different manner. 

Mr. Stan Smith, Secretary, Building Trades Council, said that he 
takes exception to the City Attorney's opinion. He said that 
Power-Anderson, Inc. did not meet the qualifications of a contractor 
because the firm is not signatory to an approved apprenticeship 
program. 

In response to questions by the Commission, Mr. Josh Milstein, Deputy 
City Attorney, said that Power-Anderson, Inc. is not in violation of 
any State or local law. 

Commissioner Toupin moved to waive Section 93 of the General 
Provisions of Water Department Contract No. 1928, as regards the 
apprenticeship program. Commissioner Barletta seconded. 

Commissioner Barletta moved, Commissioner Toupin seconded, to award 
the contract to Power-Anderson, Inc. Resolution No. 86-0136 was 
unanimously adopted.

Report of the General Manager 

Municipal Railway Budget 

Mr. Rudolf Nothenberg, General Manager of Public Utilities, reported 
the results of the Mayor's budget meeting. The budget for the 
Municipal Railway was cut by $1.5 million. Diesel fuel was cut $1 
million, anticipating an average price of 65jd a gallon. (It is 
currently selling in the mid-forties.) Platform overtime was reduced 
by $266,000. Miscellaneous cuts totaled $300,000. 

Pending Legislation 

Mr. Nothenberg reported that Assembly Bill 3003, which is pending in 
the State Legislature, proposes to change the distribution of the 25% 
portion of the half-cent sales tax which is available to A.C. Transit 
and the Municipal Railway. It has been the Commission's position 
that such matters should be solved regionally. The Board of 
Supervisors took a position to oppose the bill. 

The Legislative Analyst released a report which suggested that the 
current split of 75% BART/25% A.C. and MUNI, be revised to 65%/35%. 
This proposal has not been introduced as a bill. 

Transit Shelters 

Mr. Nothenberg announced that staff would present at the next meeting 
a recommendation to circularize a revised Request For Proposals to 
the five prequalified bidders. Also, the Commission would be asked 
to appoint a new evaluating committee. The RFP will be revised to 



86-065 



clarify any ambiguities, specify amenities which are to be included, 
specify the lighting and revise the evaluation criteria. There will 
be no display of prototypes. 

******** 

Announcements 

President Flynn announced that the Commission met in executive 
session immediately prior to this meeting and approved settlement in 
the case of John Oswall v. City and County of San Francisco. 

******** 

Item No. 10 — Regarding a professional services agreement with Mason 
Tillman Associates for revision of the Municipal Railway's operator 
rule book. 

During the Report of the General Manager, Mr. Nothenberg requested 
that this matter be continued to the next meeting to allow the union 
time to review the process. 

Mr. Lawrence Martin, International Representative, Transport Workers 
Union, requested that this matter be continued since it is an MOU 
item for negotiation and not an item which can be put outside to 
another contractor. He said that the present rule book is signed by 
the Mayor and the Board of Supervisors, and cannot be dealt with by 
just the department. 

Commissioner Toupin pointed out that the consultant's role is that of 
a scribe. He moved to continue this matter to the next meeting. 
Commissioner Staten seconded. On the question, Commissioners Toupin, 
Lee and Staten voted "Aye". Commissioner Flynn voted "No". The item 
was continued.

Resolution No. 86-0176 — Accepting work performed under Hetch Hetchy 
Contract No. HH 701, No. 24 Electrification Project, Street Lighting 
Work. 

Mr. George Scleshinger, President of Kingston Contracting, Inc., 
protested the assessment of liquidated damages in the amount of 
$28,500 for delay of 114 calendar days. 

Mr. Nothenberg noted that 137 days had been allowed as unavoidable 
delay which took into consideration the bankruptcy of the manufacturer 

Mr. Marty Gilman, Vice President, Kingston Contracting, Inc., 
requested allowance for the full 251 days of delay because in addition 
to the bankruptcy, there had been a fabrication error which Mr. Gilman 
said resulted from the City's drawings. 

Commissioner Lee stated that the regular procedure is that the City 
signs off on the concept drawings, however, the contractor is 
responsible for verification of the dimensions. 

Mr. Bill Webb, Construction Engineer, Bureau of Engineering and 
Construction Management, stated that following discovery of the 
fabrication error, there was a period of over three months during 
which there was no activity by the contractor to resolve the problem. 

On motion of Commissioner Toupin, seconded by Commissioner Lee, the 
work was accepted, including assessment of liquidated damages. 

******** 

Item No. 21 — Consideration of the appeal of the initial 
determination of the Transit Impact Development Fee for 140 Second 
Street. 



86-075 



Mr. Nothenberg reported that the building under consideration had been 
converted from garment manufacturing to office space. The regulations 
provide a credit of .17 for manufacturing (in general). The 
appeallant seeks to have the fee waived by establishment of a new 
classification of garment manufacturing with a 1.0 for 1.0 credit. 

Three alternatives were presented for consideration: 1) that the fee 
be assessed at the .17 credit factor; or 2) that the matter be 
referred to staff to develop a new classification of garment 
manufacturing and determine an appropriate credit; or 3) that the 
appellant be exempted from payment of the fee. Mr. Nothenberg said 
that the staff recommendation, and that of the City Attorney's Office, 
is to uphold the current ordinance. 

Mr. James W. Funsten, General Partner, 140 Second Street Company, 
requested a continuance of the hearing because under the ordinance he 
is due 10 days after receipt of the City's reply and only 5 days have 
elapsed. He requested that staff produce evidence supporting the .17 
credit, and also that an arrangement be made to accept a written 
promise of payment and to allow the building project to go ahead. 

President Flynn directed that staff furnish the requested data 10 days 
prior to rescheduling for Commission consideration. President Flynn 
said that a letter promising payment would not be sufficient. He 
suggested that the firm pay the fee and the City would give credit if 
there had been an excess payment. Mr. Funsten stated that he would 
stipulate to 5 days so that the hearing to resolve this may be held 
sooner . 

Commissioner Toupin expressed his belief that the garment 
manufacturing industry is different from ordinary manufacturing where 
there is heavier usage of machines. Commissioner Staten requested 
information on the possibilities of other sub-categories which might

Report of the General Manager 

Taxicab Rates 

Mr. Rudolf Nothenberg, General Manager of Public Utilities, reported 
that the Board of Supervisors approved a 20% increase in taxi fares. 
In regard to the paratransit program, staff negotiated an 8% discount 
in taxi script. The net effect of the rate increase and the discount 
will be a loss in purchasing power for the taxi script program of 
approximately $200,000.00 annually. An agreement was reached whereby 
all cab companies which belong to the association will participate in 
the paratransit program. This will increase the number of 
participating cabs from 250 to 550. 

House of Representatives Resolution No. 4089 

Mr. Nothenberg reported that Congressman Lehman had proposed 
Resolution No. 4089, which would prohibit any construction of any 
hydro generating facility in a National Park. It would preclude any 
further extensions of 0' Shaughnessy . It would impair our ability to 
replace existing facilities. We submitted testimony opposing the 
bill. 



86-088 



1-280 Projects 

Mr. Nothenberg noted that the transit projects which are included in 
the 1-280 Program are independent of the proposal to remove the 
freeway. Mr. Douglas Wright, Director of Planning and Development, 
summarized the projects in the program. Following the recent vote of 
the people to retain the freeway, Mr. Wright stated that staff 
intends to move forward on all of the projects except removal of the 
freeway and constructing replacement ramps. 

******** 

Resolution No. 86-0223 — Adopting the Municipal Railway Short-Range 
Transit Plan and Capital Improvement Program for 1986-91. 

Mr. Eldon Johnson, Attorney representing Jiffiwash, Inc., suggested 
that the Commission include its Resolution No. 86-0103 on 
privatization as part of the plan. He stated that Jiffiwash, Inc., 
had submitted a proposal to clean the buses and remove graffiti for 
80% of the City's cost for the same service. 

Mr. Mike Waters, representing Trans-Cal Tours, stated that his firm 
was interested in providing supplementary bus service and maintenance 
work for the Municipal Railway. 

Mr. James C. Seal, Privatization Coordinator for the California Bus 
Association, offered to assist in developing private enterprise 
involvement in providing transit services. 

Commissioner Staten supported staff's intention to show in future 
plans the interrelationship between capital expenditures and their 
implications for operating costs. 

By common consent, it was agreed that Resolution No. 86-0103 would be 
incorporated in the plan. On motion of Commissioner Barletta, 
seconded by Commissioner Staten, the Municipal Railway Short-Range 
Transit Plan and Capital Improvement Program for 1986-91 were adopted, 

******** 

Resolution No. 86-0224 — Authorizing rerouting of Line 43--MASONIC to 
serve a new terminal east of Fillmore Street; and authorizing

Mr. William G. Stead, General Manager, Municipal Railway, presented 
the staff proposal with the aid of maps. 

President Flynn opened the meeting for public comments. 

Mr. Theodore Johnson, 2597 Greenwich, supported the staff proposal. 

Ms. Lenore Puccini, 2953 Broderick Street, representing senior 
citizens, requested that the 43 bus operate on Greenwich Street. 

Ms. Irene Driscoll, 3500 Fillmore Street, representing Marina Middle 
School, objected to placing a terminal in front of school. She 
suggested placing the terminal on Chestnut Street. 

Ms. Corinne Pelosi, 3239 Webster Street, wanted the 43 bus to stop at 
Fillmore and Chestnut Streets. 

Ms. Pat Napoliello, representing Parents of Handicapped Students, 
spoke against placing a bus stop in front of the school. 



86-089 



Mr. William Gellen, owner of Agnews Drugs, supported moving the

Mr. Paul Lampert, 3251 Scott Street, supported moving the terminal 
from its present location.

Association, stated that he had submitted a petition to the Municipal 
Railway containing over 800 signatures suggesting that the -bus 
operate along Chestnut, Webster and Greenwich Streets.

San Francisco, requested retention of the 45S-SHUTTLE line. If that 
cannot be done, he requested that the 43 line be extended to Lincoln 
and Anza Streets in The Presidio. 

Ms. Katherine Lilienthal, 2929 Baker Street, expressed the opinion 
that if The Presidio would allow the 45 to operate in The Presidio, 
the problem would be solved. 

Mr. Norman Rolfe, representing San Francisco Tomorrow, urged 
retention of the 45S-SHUTTLE and continuation of efforts to build up 
patronage. 

Ms. Fannie McNeil, resident of Presidio Gate Apartments, urged 
retention of the 45S-SHUTTLE and rerouting of the 43-MASONIC north on 
Divisadero to Francisco Street and then east to Marina Middle School. 

Ms. Nina Eloesser, 2121 Lyon Street, expressed the opinion that if 
the bus is going to make stops it should run on Greenwich Street, if 
it is going to operate "closed door," it should run on Lombard Street. 

On motion of Commissioner Staten, seconded by Commissioner Lee, 
Resolution No. 86-0224 was adopted. 

President Flynn suggested that the community work with staff 
regarding any modification they may want to bring before the 
Commission .

Presidio, or to support the cost of the shuttle service.

in the Sunset District. 

Gladys and John Minderman, 1750 - 22nd Avenue, opposed removal of the 
limited stop area. 

Mr. Stead pointed out that the proposal would increase service by

increasing service and adjusting service to operate as local service 

at all times.

Mr. Nothenberg pointed out that it would not be practical to name 
sites before a contract was in place. He said that staff would meet 
with the potential bidders, obtain their comments and return to the 
Commission July 22, 1986. He requested that the City Attorney's 
Office: be present when staff meets with the prospective bidders; 
review the bidders' comments; and approve of any changes to the RFP 
which staff may propose. 

President Flynn called for a motion on the resolution with the 
conditions set forth by the General Manager. On motion of 
Commissioner Staten, seconded by Commissioner Lee, Resolution No. 
86-0231 was unanimously adopted.

Announcement 

President Flynn announced that the Commission met in executive 
session on June 13, 1986 and approved settlement and a Consent 
Agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and 
authorized payment of $3,250.00 in settlement of the EPA action.

Public Hearing 



Resolution No. 86-0234 — Adopting a revised Schedule of Rates and 
Charges to be charged by the San Francisco Water Department. 

Mr. Dean Coffey, General Manager and Chief Engineer, San Francisco 
Water Department, proposed a 14 percent decrease in rates for the 
suburban resale customers. He said that the suburban resale 
customers had paid an overcharge into the balancing account. The 
reduction of rates will be in conformity with the settlement 
agreement. The overcharge is due to an increase in water usage and 
delay in completion of capital improvement projects. 

President Flynn opened the public hearing. 

Mr. Ray McDevitt, attorney for the Bay Area Water Users Association, 
supported the 14 percent reduction in rates and stated that the 
amount had been properly calculated in accordance with the settlement 
agreement. 

There being no further comments, the public hearing was closed. 

On motion of Commissioner Toupin, seconded by Commissioner Staten, 
Resolution No. 86-0234 was adopted. 

******** 

Resolution No. 86-0249 -- Authorizing a personal services contract 
with L. Lum for engineering work required to identify "approved 
equal" vehicle parts. 

Ms. Ann Branston, Deputy General Manager, Equipment Maintenance, 
Municipal Railway stated that under last year's contract, by 
identifying an alternative part the department was able to save 
between $100,000 to $200,000 annually on certain parts. She cited 
axle couplings as such an item. 

Commissioner Staten said that it is important for the public to know 
that the Municipal Railway, is making this kind of effort. 
Commissioner Toupin suggested that the media should be informed of 
these success stories. 

Mr. William G. Stead, General Manager, Municipal Railway replied that 
staff would prepare an article for the "Muni Memo" documenting its 
success stories and pass that article onto the media. 

******** 

Resolution No. 86-0256 — Accepting work performed under Municipal 
Railway Contract No. MR-684 as completed. 

Commissioner Staten requested amendment of the resolution by deletion 
of the word "satisfactorily" describing completion of the work on 
this contract and on MR-820. 

******** 



86-099 



Old Business 

Commissioner Staten requested a status report on the grafitti program, 

Mr. Stead replied that the Chief of Police, Mr. Frank Jordan, reports 
weekly to the Mayor on the grafitti program. Last week 5 arrests 
were made for grafitti. Arrests have been averaging between 2 to 8 
per week. The Municipal Railway uses 2 groups of 6 San Francisco 
Conservation Corps workers, and weekend crews of up to 80 prisoners 
under the Sheriff's Department, as well as in-house personnel to 
remove grafitti. The problem is not gaining on us — it is getting 
better. There have been no convictions as yet.

recommended endorsing four-lane operations as permanent and 
authorizing the General Manager of Public Utilities to implement 
permanent reconstruction of Market Street as recommended in the 
Market Street Final Report. 

Mr. Richard Evans, Deputy Director, Department of Public Works, 
reported that the plan to create four transit lanes on Market Street

surface and roadbed have been successful. 

******** 

Resolution No. 86-0274 — Authorizing a lease for Water Department 
land at 7th Avenue and Lawton Street, San Francisco to the San 
Francisco Unified School District. 

Mr. James Lazarus, Deputy Mayor, stated that the lease of this 
property to the School District is part of a plan to exchange 
several pieces of property between the City and the School 
District. If a contract to build an academic facility on this 
property is not put out to bid by July 1, 1990, the lease will be 
terminated and the land will revert to the Water Department.

Announcement 

President Flynn announced that the Commission met in executive

of Stacy & Witbeck, Inc. regarding contracts MR-832 and MR-833.

Report of the General Manager 

Hetch Hetchy Water Releases 

Mr. Rudolf Nothenberg, General Manager of Public Utilities, reported 
that while one of the units at Holm Powerhouse has been down for 
repairs the other unit has operated 24 hours a day generating 
power. The amount of water being released in the river is 
approximately the same as would have been released under ordinary 
circumstances, except that it is spread over a 24-hour period. The 
rafting community does not have as much water in the river during 
the day as it would wish. The department has been requested to 
increase the releases during the daytime up to the amount which 
would have been released if both units were operating. Our 
financial exposure would be approximately $.5 million. The 
department informed the rafting community that it is not prepared to 
make such releases. 

Water Department Property 

Mr. Nothenberg stated that under "Proposition 13" property was 
assessed at its 1975 value with a 2% increase allowed each year. 
The State Legislature made two exceptions: the first, nonprofit golf 
courses; the second, for property owned by one county and located in 
another county. The exceptions allow for taxation at the current 
fair market value. The Water Department has been paying taxes under 
protest, calculated at the fair market value. The District Court of 
Appeals in Los Angeles held that the section covering golf courses 
is unconstitutional. Since the out-of-county provision is in the 
same section, the City has filed a request for equalization asking 
that the ruling which was applied to the golf course be applicable 
for our properties as well. The difference is about $.5 million per 
year . 

******** 
86-116 



Resolution No. 86-0295 — Authorizing a request for proposals to 
develop plans for a new rail maintenance and storage facility and 
surface access line. 

Mr. Douglas Wright, Director of Planning and Development, described 
the areas to be explored by a consulting firm. The consultant would 
use the adopted City policies contained in the 1-280 Concept Plan 
and the Market Street Project as a base and coordinate planning 
efforts with the newly evolving Mission Bay Project. The 1-280 
Concept Plan contemplated an extension emerging from the Embarcadero 
Turnaround and running along The Embarcadero to King Street, 
terminating at 4th and Townsend Streets. A Metro maintenance 
facility was considered for 7th and Townsend Streets. The E-Line 
would use the same trackage from 4th and Townsend, along The 
Embarcadero and continue north of Market Street to Fisherman Wharf. 
The Market Street Project proposes to continue the use of trackage 
on Market Street for the F-Line using old trolley cars. The F-Line 
would also use the E-Line trackage to the northeast waterfront. 

The Mission Bay Project environmental impact report includes an 
alternative which would extend the light rail project further into 
the Mission Bay area using 11th Street as a transit street. This 
would require new vehicles. The Municipal Railway feels that it is 
important to have a maintenance facility located at the end of the 
line. Funds for the study are available from SB1750, which is state 
assistance to connect regional and local transit.

Report of the General Manager 

Airport Service 

Mr. Rudolf Nothenberg, General Manager of Public Utilities, reported 
that several months ago staff received a request from the airport to 
provide bus service for its employees who live in San Francisco. 
Staff agreed to look at the possibility of such a service. However, 
our first priority is to serve San Francisco. Extending service into 
San Mateo County would only be considered if an agreement had been 
reached with Sam Trans and other San Mateo service providers. Recent 
reports in the press have been overstated. 

Tuolumne Water Releases 

Mr. Nothenberg reported that due to the shutdown for repairs of one of 
the Holm Powerhouse generators, and numerous requests from the 
community and members of the Board of Supervisors, he authorized the 
release of additional water into the Tuolumne River. The economic 
risk of releasing this water now is small.

86-125 



Resolution No. 86-0333 — Requesting a supplemental appropriation in 
the amount of $625,000 to initiate the first two years of the diesel 
coach engine rebuild program. 

Ms. Ann Branston, Deputy General Manager, Equipment Maintenance, 
Municipal Railway, described the six-year engine rebuild program using 
a chart. The program anticipates the need to rebuild 71 engines in 
fiscal year 1986-87, and 82 engines in 1987-88. In-house capacity is 
48 engines per year, leaving 23 engines to be rebuilt by a contractor 
this year and 34 next year. Staff will not have the ability to 
increase its engine rebuilding capacity until the Woods facility is 
expanded in 1990-91. 

On motion of Commissioner Staten, seconded by Commissioner Toupin, 
Resolution No. 86-0333 was unanimously adopted.

Report of the General Manager 

HR 4089 

Mr. Rudolf Nothenberg, General Manager of Public Utilities, reported 
that House of Representatives Bill No. 4089 had been amended to state 
that henceforth there shall be no construction of new dams or 
additional impoundments within a National Park, except with the 
express approval of Congress. The current Secretary of the Interior 
agrees that this authority should be with Congress. 

Commissioner Toupin suggested the use of vigorous tactics to oppose 
this bill. 

******** 

Resolution No. 86-0350 — Authorizing members of the Armed Forces to 
ride Municipal Railway vehicles without payment of fares during Navy 
Fleet Week and approving shuttle service for the Annual Fun Run. 

Commissioner Staten expressed concern about approving free service at 
a time when revenues from State and Federal sources are being cut. 
She requested a report on the amount of free service being provided 
and its impact on the budget. Mr. Nothenberg stated that the only 
free service being provided is when a City Department requests such 
service and it is determined to be in the best interest of the City. 
This is because general fund monies are used. All other shuttle 
service is paid for as charter service at rates set by the 
Commission. The request before the Commission now would make an 
exception to the charter rates. 

On motion of Commissioner Toupin, seconded by Commissioner Lee, 
Resolution No. 86-0350 was unanimously adopted.

possible that the department may be out of fluoride for a few days 
while supplies are in transit. 

******** 

Item 9 — Discussion of 1985-86 Civil Grand Jury Report. 

President Flynn appointed Commissioners Toupin and Staten as a 
committee to critique the Grand Jury report. 

******** 

Resolution No. 86-0364 — Approving the membership of the PUC Transit 
Shelter Program Selection Committee. 

It was agreed that only the persons designated would serve on the 
committee. Substitutions would not be allowed. 

******** 

Resolutions Nos. 86-0365 and 86-0366 -- Affirming the Commission's 
decision to maintain the City of San Jose and the City of Santa 
Clara, respectively, as temporary customers after June 30, 1987. 



86-138 



Commissioner Toupin questioned the need for a Memorandum of 
Understanding regarding any possible interruptions of service. Mr. 
Arthur Jensen, Deputy General Manager, San Francisco Water 
Department, replied that the two cities requested clarification as to 
what the department's procedures and advance notice would be if they 
were to be cut off. 

Mr. Nothenberg stated that the Water Department is very close to 
approaching the maximum capacity of the system. Any other 
uninterruptable customers for a period of 35 years would pose a risk 
which staff is not ready to assume until we are assured of more 
delivery capacity and more water to deliver. 

Commissioner Toupin stated that he was not opposed to trying to 
satisfy the needs of the two cities; however, he could not 
responsibly agree to the City entering into a long-term contract 
without consideration. 

It was agreed to delete the Memorandum of Understanding from the 
resolution and to consider a revised proposal at a later date. 

******** 

Resolutions Nos. 86-0376 and 86-0377 -- Accepting work performed 
under HH-724 and HH-725, respectively. 

Mr. Leo Jed, Deputy General Manager and Chief Engineer, PUC, 
described the project to rebuild existing overhead wires and add a 
second set of wires to Market Street for four lanes of trolley coach 
operation. He stated that the project had been completed a few weeks 
early and almost $5 million under budget. He congratulated the 24 
employees who constituted the project team. President Flynn thanked 
everyone for their efforts.

Report of the General Manager 

Mr. Rudolf Nothenberg, General Manager of Public Utilities, 
acknowledged that he had been nominated for the position of Chief 
Administrative Officer. He said that if he were to leave the Public 
Utilities Commission, he would do so with mixed emotions. He said 
that he felt he has had the best team and the best Commission in the 
City, and any success during his tenure should in a large part be 
attributed to the employees and the support received from the 
Commission. He expressed gratitude to the members of the Commission 
and the staff for making his stewardship a success. If confirmed, he 
would assume the new position in January, 1987.

86-156 



Item 8(g) — Regarding the award of HH-657. 

Mr. J. Conrad Abbett, of Abbett Electric Corp., protested the bid 
submitted by Kingston Associates, the apparent low bidder, because 
the subcontractor work was increased after the bid opening. Mr. 
Arnold Baker, Contract Compliance Officer, PUC, stated that Kingston 
did increase the participation of Minority Business Enterprise and 
Women Business Enterprise after the bid opening in order to achieve 
the MBE and WBE goals. Previously, the department received an 
opinion from the City Attorney which said that the department could 
work with contractors to increase MBE and WBE participation during 
the 5-day period following the bid opening when information is 
received on MBE and WBE participation. Mr. George Krueger, Utilities 
General Counsel, confirmed that the department can continue to work 
with the low bidder in order to increase minority participation. 
However, he did not have the specifics on this case. 

On motion of Commissioner Barletta, seconded by Commissioner Toupin, 
this item was deferred to the next meeting so that Mr. Abbett's 
grounds for protest could be reviewed by the City Attorney's office. 

******** 

Resolution No. 86-0424 — Approving in concept conversion of Line 
31-BALBOA from diesel motor coach to electric trolley coach service. 

Mr. Peter Straus, Director of Planning, Municipal Railway, described 
the benefits of converting the line to electric trolley operation as: 

1) economic, due to less annual operating costs and longer vehicle 
life cycle; 2) improved fleet utilization since there is a surplus of 
trolley vehicles; and 3) environmental benefits derived from quiet 
and clean operation. 

Regarding handicapped service, Mr. William G. Stead, General Manager, 
Municipal Railway, stated that the 31 Line is currently accessible 
but will not be after conversion. Staff intends to reallocate those 
accessible diesel coaches to another line and make it accessible 
prior to conversion. All future purchases of electric buses will be 
lift equipped. 

President Flynn opened the meeting to the publico The following 
persons spoke in favor of the conversion: 

Ms. Penelope Foster Davey, 2545 Turk Street 

Ms. Elaine Thornburgh, 580 Funston Street 

Ms. Jeanie Kway, 658 - 15th Avenue 

Mr. Norman Rolfe, representing San Francisco Tomorrow 

Mr. Richard Marshall, 150 Franklin Street 

Mr. Frank Whitman, 1332 Balboa Street 

Mr. Richard Hood, 725 Hyde Street, #5 

Mrs. Vivian Goodwin, 1226 - 40th Avenue 

Sister Thomas, representing Presentation High School 

Ms. Anna B. Neeley, 1280 Laguna Street, spoke in favor of retaining 
the existing route. 

Mr. George Moore, 1231 Shrader, speaking for the Municipal Railway 
Elderly and Handicapped Advisory Committee, reluctantly endorsed the 
proposed electrification and urged the following conditions: 1) all 
articulated trolley coaches will be purchased with wheelchair lifts; 

2) that coaches released from service on the 31-BALBOA line be 
designated for accessible service on another diesel coach line with 
special attention to 7-day-a-week service on the 28-NINETEENTH AVENUE 
line; 3) that the 5-FULTON Line be given consideration for accessible 
articulated trolley coaches; and 4) that lift equipped van service be 
prioritized for any 31 Line patrons left without service. 

******** 
86-157 



Resolution No. 86-0425 — Approving a supplemental appropriation to 
enhance Municipal Railway service. 

Mr. Nothenberg reported that the Mayor requested the department to 
determine the most underserved areas of the City and the most 
underserved transit lines. A package of service increases, including 
restoration of the 58-LEAVENWORTH and LRV repairs, was put together. 
This supplemental appropriation will fund those service increases 
through the end of the fiscal year. Continuation of funding will be 
included in next year's budget. The LRV repairs will be a one time 
expenditure . 

Mr. Angelo Figone, representing the Municipal Railway, described each 
of the proposed increases in service. 

******** 

Resolution No. 86-0432 — Awarding WD-1780 to Homer J. Olson, Inc. 
and Francis Construction, Inc., a joint venture, and waiving a 
technical defect in the bid. 

Mr. Bob Smallman representing Dalton Construction, the second low 
bidder, protested award of the contract due to the change of the unit 
price amount in the Olson/Francis bid. Mr. Smallman requested a 
two-week continuation so that he could finalize his protest. 

Mr. Krueger said that it was his recommendation that the Commission 
sustain the low bidder and view the error as a technical defect. 

Mr. Edward Allison, attorney for the joint venture of Olson/Francis, 
stated that it was obvious that there had been a mistake and what the 
mistake was. There was a bid item for 9 f 000 pounds of miscellaneous 
metal. His client wrote $2,000 in the unit price which would have 
been an extension of $18,000,000 for that item. The amount written 
for the total of that item was $18,000 which would reflect a $2.00 
unit price. The overall total reflects the $18,000 amount. He said 
the mistake was a clerical error. 

Mr. Krueger stated that Dalton would be seeking a temporary 
restraining order on October 24, 1986, but that should not stop the 
Commission from proceeding with its action. 

On motion of Commissioner Barletta, seconded by Commissioner Staten, 
Resolution No. 86-0432 was adopted. 

******** 

Resolution No. 86-0433 — Awarding WD-1941 to Ranger Pipelines, Inc. 
and Interland General Engineering, a joint venture, the third low 
bidder . 

Mr. Smallman said that Dalton was the apparent low bidder on this 
contract. He stated that the basis of the staff recommendation to 
award to the third low bidder was due to lack of information on 
Dalton's WBE submittal. He submitted to the Commission sworn 
statements that this information had been delivered to the contract 
compliance officer and was subsequently lost. He said that Esquivel 
was a joint venture partner. 

Mr. Baker related the sequence of events and said that Dalton 
submitted the requested data several weeks after the deadline. The 
minority participation goal for the contract is 30%. The 
Dalton/Esquivel joint venture has 13.28% minority participation. 

On motion of Commissioner Lee, seconded by Commissioner Toupin, 
Resolution No. 86-0433 was adopted.

Report of the General Manager 

Mr. Rudolf Nothenberg, General Manager of Public Utilities, stated 
that he was compelled to remove Item 17 on the Transit Shelter 
Program Contract from today's Commission calendar because the Human 
Rights Commission has not yet completed its investigation leading to 
the finding of Minority Business Enterprise, Women Business 
Enterprise, and local business preferences. The Director of the 
Human Rights Commission assured Mr. Nothenberg yesterday that the 
work would be completed within a week to ten days and furnished to 
our Contract Compliance Officer. Staff will then be in a position to 
make a recommendation to the Commission. Mr. Nothenberg said he 
believed the Transit Shelter item would be back on the calendar at 
the next Commission meeting on November 12. 

Mr. Nothenberg announced that Ms. Ann Branston, Deputy General 
Manager for Equipment Maintenance, Municipal Railway, won the top 
SPUR award of $1250 as the Manager of the Year. 

Mr. Nothenberg reported that the Holm Powerhouse went back into full 
operation three days ago. 

******** 

Resolution No. 86-0449 — Regarding award of Hetch Hetchy Contract 
No. HH-657. 

Mr. Arnold Baker, Contract Compliance Officer, PUC, reported that he 
had worked with Kingston Associates, the apparent low bidder, to help 
them achieve the Minority Business Enterprise and Women Business 
Enterprise goals, after receiving verbal guidance from the City 
Attorney. Kingston has achieved the goals of the contract, with over 
30% MBE and 5% WBE participation. Mr. Baker is satisfied that 
Kingston has achieved the goals. Kingston has achieved the goals 
with Mr. Baker's understanding of the federal regulations, and 
checking those regulations with the Civil Rights Officers of UMTA in 
terms of suppliers. 

Mr. Michael London, attorney for J. Conrad Abbett, stated that they 
were protesting the bid submitted by Kingston Associates because (1) 
allowing Kingston, at this point, to modify their MBE and WBE numbers 
is not in accordance with the solicitation and, therefore, cannot be 
condoned or allowed by the Commission; and (2) Kingston's MBE and WBE 
numbers, even as modified, do not meet the goals. Kingston's bid is 
not responsive. 

Mr. J. Conrad Abbett, of Abbett Electric Corp., stated that the bid 
submitted by Kingston Associates should be rejected. What they are 
trying to do cannot be achieved by using suppliers. They must have 
subcontractors, and they cannot add subcontractors after the bid is 
closed. Their original bid was not in accordance with the required 
provisions for bidding. 

In response to questions by the Commission, Mr. Krueger said that as 
far as adding suppliers, or subcontractors who have less than 
one-half of one percent of the work, Mr. Baker is correct, in our 
opinion, and can work with Kingston who may continue to bring up 
their MBE and WBE goals. 

Mr. Martin A. Gilman, Vice President of Kingston Contracting and a 
partner in Kingston Associates, stated that Kingston is acting in 
good faith with the intent of affirmative action and minority 
participation in the program. 



86-165 



Commissioner Barletta moved, Commissioner Toupin seconded, to award 
the contract to Kingston Associates. Resolution No. 86-0449 was 
unanimously adopted.

******** 

Resolution No. 86-0468 — Directing the General Manager of Public 
Utilities to take those steps necessary to negotiate a final contract 
with Gannett Outdoor Company, Inc. for the building and maintenance 
of transit shelters. 

Mr. Rudolf Nothenberg, General Manager of Public Utilities, described 
the process which lead to the recommendation of Gannett Outdoor 
Company, Inc. for the transit shelter program. He pointed out that 
staff was watched by, and lead by the advice of the City Attorney's 
Office throughout the process. Determination of whether a bidder 
qualified for Minority Business Enterprise (MBE), Women Business 
Enterprise (WBE) or Local Business Enterprise (LBE) preference was 
made by the Human Rights Commission. The ratings by the selection 
committee were technical — based upon the established criteria. 
Preference points as awarded by the Human Rights Commission were then 
applied to the ratings to determine the overall scores. Gannett 
Outdoor Company, Inc. scored highest. 

President Flynn announced that speakers would be limited to 3 
minutes. The meeting was opened for public comment. 

Mr. Masato Inaba, of U.S. Human Resources Corporation, commented on 
the all white male composition of the selection committee and its 
lack of perspective as relates to minority business. He requested 
that the Commission review the video tapes of the interviews and 
continue this matter until all members of the Commission could be 
present . 

Mr. George Suey, National Director of the Chinese American Citizens 
Alliance, said that his organization provided input into Shelter 
Media's design of its transit shelter. He said that the evaluation 
committee should have had a mixture of people, including minorities 
and women members. 



86-176 



Mr. Bruce Williams, President, Shelter Media, stated that after the 
previous selection process, he revised his proposal to address what 
he felt were the City's concerns — a minority equity joint venture and 
an innovative product. He pointed out that the scores were very 
close and requested that the Commission view the video tapes and 
review the points awarded to each firm. 

Mr. Dennis Manning, representing Gannett Outdoor Company, Inc., 
expressed his delight in being selected to implement their proposal. 

Ms. Eva Patterson, a civil rights attorney with San Francisco Lawyers 
Committee for Urban Affairs, stated that she had no economic interest 
in this contract but had worked with the MBE/WBE/LBE ordinance. She 
said that the philosophy of the ordinance was to open up the process 
so that minority and women could have a share of the economic pie. 
She urged that the process be reopened and that the selection 
committee be more representative of the community. 

Mr. Nothenberg pointed out that the selection committee only looked 
at technical items of design, maintainability, siting and 
durability. Questions of where the money would be spent were made in 
accordance with the MBE/WBE/LBE ordinance. Both the PUC Contract 
Compliance Office and the Human Rights Commission agreed that the 
process was well within the confines of that ordinance. 

Commissioner Staten asked what the minority participation would be in 
the Gannett proposal. Mr. Arnold Baker, Contract Compliance Officer, 
PUC replied that Gannett achieved the goals for the contract on the 
subcontracting level. Shelter Media/US Human Resources Corporation 
achieved the goals on a joint venture level. There was no 
requirement that the goals be achieved on one level or the other. 
Mr. Arvid Eckenberg, representing Gannett, listed the following firms 
as subcontractors: W&F Building Maintenance, as general maintenance 
contractor, a MBE; Patco, a WBE for specialty cleaning; AMS Services, 
a MBE; G&G Maintenance, a MBE; Theisen Glass, a WBE for glazing 
services. In the area of construction they intended to use: West Bay 
Contracting, a MBE joint venture; Nationwide Construction, a WBE 
joint venture with Stacey & Witbeck; for receiving and warehousing 
materials, 0' Campo-Talao Supply, a MBE; for specialty metal, Donico, 
Inc., a WBE; in general operations for community relations, Mary 
O'Shea and Associates, a WBE; and supplying advertising material, 
Color 2000, a MBE. 

President Flynn asked how many minorities or women will be in 
administration. Mr. Donald Farias, President of Gannett Outdoor 
Company, Inc. stated that the firms' minority hiring practices were 
based upon the Metropolitan Statistical Area data for each market. 
Mr. Baker stated that the goals of the contract were 10% of the jobs 
and 10% of the dollar amount of the contract going to women and 50% 
of the jobs and 50% of the dollar amount to minorities. Mr. Farias 
assured the Commission that Gannett would meet the goals. 

Mr. Bruce Williams stated that the essential difference between joint 
venturing and subcontracting would be that U.S. Human Resources 
Corporation would be at risk along with Shelter Media for 35% of $7 
million . 

Mr. Martin O'Campo, an architect, speaking on behalf of Shelter 
Media, stated that this is a joint venture with 35% minority 
participation, with shared profits, shared management and a 
significant amount of minority business development involved. 



86-177 



Commissioner Toupin noted that it had been a close decision and that 
it was his belief that the selection process was fair, legal and 
conducted by a panel of technically qualified people. The human 
resources aspect was handled by the Commission of the City designated 
for that purpose. He moved approval of the staff recommendation. 
Commissioner Staten seconded with the comment that the Commission had 
received two extremely good proposals. She said that she was 
satisfied with the evaluation. Resolution No. 86-0468 was 
unanimously adopted.

Commissioner Staten inquired as to the status of implementing the 
group of Municipal Railway service improvements which were approved 
by the Commission. Mr. Rudolf Nothenberg, General Manager of Public 
Utilities, replied that due to a projected shortfall in the 1987-88 
budget, the Mayor indicated that all new requests for funds were put 
on hold.

******** 



86-183 



Resolution No. 86-0496 — Requesting the Board of the Bay Area Rapid 
Transit District (BART) to provide capital financing assistance for 
the Muni Metro Extension Project. 

Mr. Douglas Wright, Director of Planning and Development, reported on 
the status of the projects which were included in the 1-280 Concept 
Program. He used maps to indicate the proposed routings. 

Mr. Wright stated that the BART Board adopted a policy to fund LRV 
extensions in San Francisco. The Muni Metro Extension, as set forth 
in the 1-280 Program, would consist of a surface extension of the 
Muni Metro trackage and service from the planned terminus of the Muni 
Turnback project to the vicinity of 6th Street and King Street. If 
this project were funded by BART, rather than the federal government, 
preparation of an environmental impact statement could be avoided, 
thus moving the project ahead 2 years. 

On motion of Commissioner Staten, seconded by Commissioner Lee, 
Resolution No. 86-0496 was unanimously adopted, requesting the BART 
Board to provide funding for the Muni Metro Extension Project.

consultant assistance in training supervisory and management 
personnel in the Municipal Railway Transportation Division, for an 
amount not to exceed $50,000. 

Ms. Alice Fialkin, representing Transport Workers Union Local 200, 
stated that the union was in agreement regarding the need for 
training but believed the training should be done inhouse by hiring 
additional staff rather than by a contractor. Commissioner Toupin 
pointed out that this training would be a one-time program and 
therefore would not require permanent staff.
